A man and woman have been beaten with baseball bats in Rathcoole.



The pair were beaten with baseball bats by three masked men who broke into their home in Newtownabbey on Friday night shortly before midnight.

The victims were both treated in hospital after the attack, though their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

Although there has been no official confirmation from the PSNI this attack has the trademarks of a loyalist punishment attack.

Police have appealed for anyone with any information about the attack to get in contact with them.
